Another man,another woman
7 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Claude Lelouch has made documentaries: "Loin du Vietnam" was a short in a film made up of sequences by different directors including Agnès Varda;"13 jours en France" was a reporton the Olympic Games of Grenoble 1968 "filmed with virtuosity but without feeling "(Claude Bouliq Mercier).

"Un homme qui me plait" ,although it has a plot -a love affair between two married people (with two generally nice actors:Belmondo and Annie Girardot)who both work on a film and who combine business with pleasure

  • does not amount to much.I've got the impression that Lelouch was more


interested in the U.S.A. than in his tepid trite story.

Belmondo tells it all in one of his lines:"Why make such a film? Rich people in beautiful cars staying in luxury hotels ,who cares?"Pretty smart on his part!
